Check out the Capital City in your Edmonton Rental Car
Explore Canada’s Festival City
Edmonton is the capital city of the Canadian province of Alberta, and is home to year-round festivals, one of North America’s largest malls, Fort Edmonton Park and the Royal Alberta Museum. Drive your Edmonton rental car to explore everything this city has to offer.
West Edmonton Mall
Up until 2004, this mall boasted the claim of the largest shopping mall in North America, and tenth largest in the world. With over 800 stores and services, there’s more than enough to keep you busy in your Thrifty rental car. But there’s more than just shopping — the West Edmonton Mall offers visitors several attractions including Galaxyland (the world’s second largest indoor amusement park with 24 rides and attractions, along with the world’s largest indoor triple roller coaster), World Waterpark (the world’s second largest indoor waterpark with the world’s largest indoor wave pool), Sea Life Caverns/Sea Lion Rock (a large indoor lagoon with a salt-water habitat), Mayfield Toyota Ice Palace (a scaled down version of an NHL regulation sized ice rink located in the center of the mall) and an 18-hole miniature golf course, just to name a few!
Fort Edmonton Park
Royal Alberta Museum
To experience the world’s largest living history museum, drive your Edmonton rental car to 7000 143 Street. The park is situated on 158 acres of wooded parkland along Edmonton’s river valley, making it a perfect escape from the hustle and bustle of the city. Fort Edmonton Park began as a Canada Centennial project in 1967, but quickly expanded to include various aspects of the city’s history, such as the 1846 Hudson’s Bay Fort as well as the Streets of 1885, 1905 and 1920. For a taste of real history, visit this park in your Edmonton car rental to experience free steam engine train rides, free streetcar rides, period rides such as wagon, stagecoach, pony and buggy rides, and a host of other fun activities.
Step inside a museum where Queen Elizabeth once visited. Located at 12845 102 Ave. NW, the Royal Alberta Museum offers visitors a peek at Alberta’s past, present and future. Kids will love the bug room and dinosaurs, while all ages can benefit from the natural history exhibit, a wildlife exhibit, an entomology exhibit and a Native Culture exhibit featuring Aboriginal life. For fun afternoon of discovery the whole family will love, drive your Thrifty rental car to this museum and take home a piece of Alberta’s rich history.
